Spennymoor are looking to extend their unbeaten league run to six matches when they go to Southport on Saturday.

Since losing 2-1 at home to Kettering on 11th January, Moors have drawn against Kidderminster and Brackley, and won against Leamington, Gloucester and Altrincham – the latter a stirring 3-2 win last Tuesday night at the Brewery Field, with Rob Ramshaw scoring a memorable strike.

That run of results has lifted them up to seventh in the table, level on points with Altrincham and Brackley, but with a worse goal difference.

Manager Jason Ainsley said; “I thought we played very well in midweek, despite the conditions.

“We played some very good football, and Rob Ramshaw scored a worldy, it was one of the best goals of the season.

“We have had some very pleasing results recently that have put us back into then play offs, but we have to keep working hard, because twelve clubs are looking for a play off place, and Southport are one of them.

“But we know that today’s game will be very tough, they always are against Southport, whose manager Liam Watson, I know very well. We will be going there full of confidence, but respectful towards our opposition.

“A lot of games in this league are tough, and sometimes you need a little bit of luck or a little bit of magic to win games.”

Ainsley has some injury headaches to think about before he picks his team, as Carl Magnay, Jamie Chandler, Tyler Forbes, James Roberts, Shane Henry and Ben McKenna are all struggling with knocks.

Southport, meanwhile, are twelfth in the table, and are six points behind Moors with two games in hand. They have lost five of their fifteen home league games this season.

In the BetVictor North West Division, Marske United are aiming to consolidate their place in the play offs at home to Trafford.

Lucas Bell is added to the squad, and manager Carl Jarrett said; “We need to make our home games count, fie out of our next six are at home.”

Dunston are at home to Prescot Cables in the same league.

In the Premier Division, leaders South Shields are at Grantham, Morpeth are at home to Hyde, and Whitby are at home to Stafford Rangers.
